***Brant Rosen lost his rabbi position for speaking out against Israel's Protective Edge Slaughter during summer 2014; that communicates Jewish congregations are often largely Zionist!*** “Heartening,” describes Rabbi Rosen’s talk. The Rabbi overcame intense Zionism and Identification with Israel for The Righteous Path. Like most Jews since 1948, mythic stories of Zionism were enthralling to Rabbi Rosen. He noted the headiness of a National Liberation Movement to his Persecuted People - a redemptive story even to secular Jews. It was redemptive myth telling - on the heels of the Holocaust - that transformed Zionism into “religion” for American Jewry. REDEMPTION Lost! New Israeli Historians with access to declassified Israel Army files shattered the glorious founding myths of Israel. That laid bare Jewish Political Nationalism, one of many nagging doubts for Rabbi Rosen. Events in Lebanon & Gaza, “separate sidewalks” for Palestinians, talk of a demographic threat, blind hoopla over Israel Independence Day all pushed Rabbi Rosen into Palestinian Solidarity. He admits Israel “Gets a Pass” and enjoys a “Double Standard.” The Jewish community he characterized largely as “Zero Sum” - either with Israel or against. However, Rabbi Rosen has struck a thorny truce with his synagogue over Palestinian activism. Many have joined with him. PASTOR Exemplar! His soul-searching is obvious. His outreach is twice-blessed. Rabbi Rosen inspires a move beyond moral complacency in his synagogue. He may even liberate other rabbis onto The Righteous Path. For non-Jews, this talk is especially compelling. We witness, alas, the genuine article with intact moral compass! Shalom aleichem Rabbi Brant Rosen!
